    Unemployment And Underemployment

    The unemployment rate is 7.9% according to the latest figures. I think it's higher when you consider the people who are underemployed. I know plenty of them, and live with one of them. I think it's tragic when people who have college degrees (even graduate degrees) cannot find...

    Worse to Come

    Things are bad right now, but I see them getting worse before they get better. The UK is feeling the pinch worse than the rest of Europe. Our whole economy is based on people buying stuff they can't afford.

    Horrible

    It's an outrage!  More and more stories in the news. Teachers are being let go now. Condencing classes to save on money, that's crap!  We need help for this poor situation.

    Waste

    Today we have many jobs that are a waste and are created just to give someone a job. At school I see 5 people in the office that are not needed but the principal wants to be nice and give them a job. We as taxpayers are paying for unnecessary placements that are not needed. The...

    And You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

    Wait until unemployment hits 25%. Of course, maybe at that point, our government will do something other than bail out the rich. Nah.

    If You Are Unemployed, Should You Move Somewhere Else In Order To Find A Job?
